Extreme / Avaya / Nortel Ethernet Switching / Re: 4548gt
« Last post by MatzeKS on February 16, 2018, 02:04:33 AM »
Hi GreyElf

I'm assuming you mean this one?

! --- OSPF ---
router ospf
router-id xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

As you can see, this particular ID is related to OSPF, which is per default not enabled.
Additional this ID is randomly generated.

Good luck

I have 4548GT switch that I factory reset.  When I went in to verify, I found an IP address still in a line called;
router-ID xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (with the x's representing the an IP address)

This router is getting turned in and I just want to ensure this is not an in use IP address.

Is this a default for the switch?

I am a Cisco guy and am not used to working with Nortel.  The syntax seems to be pretty similar however there is JUST enough difference that I feel I need to ask questions.

Thank you all for your time
Hello cloudq,
I think you'll find that it is against the terms of this forum to share software here.

Do you have  them ? If yes, could you send them to my email address or share them to webdisk,Thanks for help again.
Extreme / Avaya / Nortel Ethernet Switching / Software compatibility
« Last post by sangeetaparekh on February 13, 2018, 03:55:45 PM »
We're in the process of planning an upgrade to our existing kit,  these being:

Passport 1624G




3524GT PWR+

The new kit will be a pair of VSP 4450GSX-PWR+ (as network core switches) on software version 6.0.1.

My question is will the existing hardware require firmware and software upgrades to function correctly?

Every thing will be EoL in some point ....I would not buy X460/450 just because of that...
The - is
Multivendor network is more complex
X460 could not be use as SPB node
I like the color?

By the way
EoL link to X460

Extreme / Avaya / Nortel Ethernet Switching / Edge Switches - Avaya or Extreme

Good Afternoon

A high level query I appreciate.....

We have always been a Nortel/Avaya house for both voice and data. Investment has been made recently in a data centre core/server LAN using Avaya VSP 8200, VSP7200 and VSP4800 in providing a 'fabric enabled' solution. We currently use ERS5500 switches within our multiple edge closets with SMLT 1Gb uplinks to our core switches. Budget is available to commence a refresh process covering these edge switches. Our intentions where to utilise the ERS 4900 switches with 10Gb uplinks - inhouse skills mean that the implementation can be covered in-house. On the voice estate we use AACC6/CS1000e and around 1000 1120E IP sets, so a bedded in configuration is in place that woudl be replicated with the ERS4900. However with the Extreme purchase we have been informed that their X450/460 range would be a more than able alternative. The likelyhood being that the X range will see the longer term R&D with ERS probably seeing an EoL at some point going forward. This possibly means external cost for switch builds and training needs for internal staff.

Don't want to rush into anything but budget is linked to end of financial year constraints....

Just wondered if any others are at a similar point and what there thoughts are going forward.

Extreme / Zebra / Motorola Wireless LAN Switches / Cisco WGB

Hey All

I am wondering if any of you have had to ever deploy and environment, where a Cisco WGB running in universal mode was connecting to the WLAN being pushed out by an AP7161


To properly interpret this, a diagram of the network would be required.  Do you use an MLTs?  These would/should have STP disabled so the switch would not participate in Spanning Tree - Root Cost:0, Root Port:0.  At least that's what I'm thinking.  :-)

What brand of UPS is the 5130?  Sounds like Eaton/Powerware.  A 1.4 ms switch-over shouldn't cause the phones to reboot.

Do the phones have PCs connected to them?

Besides the usual, "upgrade to the latest supported firmware", I would suggest you change the UPS to an "online" model.  The Eaton 9PX or Liebert GXT4 series.

Also.  Have the electrical system in the building thoroughly checked - ground loops, open ground etc.
Extreme / Avaya / Nortel Ethernet Switching / Odd POE Failure on 5520-48T-PWR
« Last post by eangulus on February 08, 2018, 06:20:38 PM »

Just trying to get some insight.

We have a stack of 6 5520-48T-PWR switches running 6.3.6 firmware.

To that, we have a number of POE Cameras and POE Cisco SPA504G phones. THis is all connected to a 5130 UPS with an extended battery. With servers and NAS, this runs the whole rack for 40min no problem.

The issue I am having thou is that when UPS kicks in due to an outage or even just a power flicker, instantly the Cisco phones reboot. The Cameras stay running. The switch never reboots. Everything else is fine. The 5130 switch rate is 1.4ms. It is instant and reproducible.

I have set the POE ports to Critical to see if that fixed it but it didn't. Not sure what the real cause is and therefore have no idea how or even if it can be rectified.

Any ideas for me to test and try?
